Title Convective Nozaki-Bekki holes in a long cavity OCT laser Type
Year 2019 Publication Optics Express Abbreviated Journal Opt. Express
Volume 27 Issue 11 Pages 16395-16404
Abstract We show, both experimentally and theoretically, that the loss of coherence of a long cavity optical coherence tomography (OCT) laser can be described as a transition from laminar to turbulent flows. We demonstrate that in this strongly dissipative system, the transition happens either via an absolute or a convective instability depending on the laser parameters. In the latter case, the transition occurs via formation of localised structures in the laminar regime, which trigger the formation of growing and drifting puffs of turbulence. Experimentally, we demonstrate that these turbulent bursts arc seeded by appearance of Nozaki-Bekki holes, characterised by the zero field amplitude and pi phase jumps. Our experimental results are supported with numerical simulations based on the delay differential equations model.
